Is There a Gauge for the Section Above BV on the Provo?

Post by Wil on Tue 21 May 2013, 8:47 am

Hoping to take my 18' cat down the Provo with the family again today on the section above BV, and was wanting to see what the flow is at. I am assuming that it is the "River Below Deer Creek" gauge on the following page: http://water1.cuwcd.com/rivers/FlowInfo.aspx?loc=lp

But wanted to make sure.

Thanks for any info - Wil

The River Brain gauge is wrong. That just shows whats coming out of the Deer Creek Dam. The diversion (Olmstead Dam) at the put-in for BV takes out all the fun (H2O) and puts most of it back in at the mouth of Provo Canyon. A good rule of thumb, but has know to be wrong, is to take out 400 cfs of that gauge on River Brain, as that is the maximum Olmstead pipes can hold.

I guess they are putting in a real time gauge for the BV section and post it on the CUWCD web-site sometime?

I just updated that riverbrain page to use a flow formula and took out 300cfs as an estimated flow for that run then. Thanks!
